Jason King is now an author, who is in the process of writing his adventure novel, featuring the fictional character Mark Cain, who resembles Jason King from general appearance down to mannerism and personality. Though constantly harassed by his publisher about deadlines and people who need help, Jason King is still not one to shy from enjoying life to the fullest from good food to beautiful women. His research for the book and thirst for adventures take him all around the world and to some exotic, mysterious locations. He encounters more stirring dramas, greater danger, deeper and more colourful intrigue, more exceptional situations, not to mention more beautiful women than any one man has the right to experience. He copes with all this in his long, elegant and flamboyant stride. He expects anything to happy - they usually do, he also is sure to take care of everything, which he usually does too.
This series features super star appearances such as the astoundingly beautiful Ingrid Pitt (Countess Dracula), Julian Glover (Troy), Stephanie Beacham (Bad Girls) and many more. This series will entertain and thrill in equal measure.
